Kibbutz Lotan is an intentional Reform Zionist Jewish community based on the values of renewing Judaism, equality, economic cooperation, ecology, “I-Thou”, right livelihood, home community and tikun ‘olam (repairing the world).
Students are offered a variety of opportunity to engage in community living during their Semester at Kibbutz Lotan. As residents of the EcoCampus, students study, create, and live in a sustainable community in a constant state of social change and infrastructure development.
Lotan’s success, as an experiment in communal living, stems from its dynamic nature of constantly re-evaluating and reinventing the way the community lives the kibbutz ideal. The community successfully balances introspection with involvement and outreach to create a healthy and vibrant society.
